Linea di Confine continues its traditional proposal of research focusing on contemporary issues starting from a local analysis of broader phenomena. This photographic survey concerns a small engineering company located in the Tecnopolo (‘Technology Hub’) of Moncalieri (province of Turin), characterised by a strong vocation for international markets ever since its foundation in the mid-’50s.
Andrea Simi relates to the specificity of the context driven by a strong cognitive intent and, through his documentary practice, hints at a precise approach to the issue of the photography of work and its issues of representation and description. His is a stance in sharp contrast with postmodernist rhetoric, which seems to want to preclude photography from any possibility of questioning the real, confining its meaning to the aesthetic sphere alone.
